Acetaminophen codeine best-selling drug in Iran


TEHRAN, Dec. 19 (Mehr News Agency) -- Acetaminophen Codeine is the best-selling medicine in the country, Iran's deputy health minister for food and medicines said here on Friday.

"Acetaminophen Codeine is Iran's best-selling medicine," Ebrahim Sheibani said.

"Adult cold and Amoxicillin -- the most common antibiotics -- are the second and third most-consumed medicines across the country," he added.

Sheibani also said that 97 percent of the country's required medicines are produced inside the country, and only 3 percent of drugs are imported from other countries, while the importing rate was 75 percent before the Islamic Revolution in 1979.
